“Why bother with reservations???”
Reviewed May 16, 2008

Since we had eaten there twice last year and really enjoyed their holiday buffets for Thanksgiving and Christmas (both times we had reservations), when my son was graduating this year, we again made reservations for their buffet two months before his graduation date. Image my surprise when we received a phone call two days before our reservation date telling us that they had overbooked and that they had to cancel our reservation giving us a day and a half to come up with another place. I would think that a place that has been in business this long and has gone through the many football weekends at Penn State would have someone experienced enough to figure out it was graduation weekend and to keep an eye on their bookings. I am extremely disappointed that they have started our weekend out on a bad note. We will never be going back to this place.
